What is Concurrent Filing for I-485 Adjustment of Status and how does it benefit EB-5 Investors?

Concurrent filing allows certain EB-5 investors with a legal presence in the U.S. to get a Green Card without having to leave the U.S. It also allows them to enjoy the work and travel benefits of their EB-5 Visa before it is issued.

This new provision allows EB-5 investors on with legal presence in the U.S. to concurrently file Form I-526E (Regional Center Immigrant Investor Petition) with Form I-485 (Application for Permanent Residence or Adjustment of Status). They can also file Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization) and Form I-131 (Application for Travel Document).

Concurrent filing enables these investors to apply for adjustment of status along with their EB-5 petitions, rather than waiting for I-526E petition approval. This concurrent filing is a significant development for foreign nationals seeking to change from non-immigrant visas to permanent residency without leaving the U.S.

Additionally, the EB-5 concurrent filing process is generally more efficient than the consular visa process abroad, which can face lengthy delays.
